12 oz bottle into a Belgian snifter.
This is a mediocre looking RIS with a mediocre aroma.
The flavor and smooth mouthfeel are, however, well above mediocre. There's a sweet, boozy aroma from the near black, opaque body that's unimpaired by a head, there being only a ring moments after the pour. Full body with light carbonation. The flavor though, is rich, moderately complex and well balanced. Partially hidden high ABV.

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a jet black color and a thick consistency. There was a small amount of foamy, tan-colored head that lasted a below average amount of time. No real lacing to speak of.

S: Smelled of a lot of dark fruit, malt, and some coffee.

T: Tasted of a small amount of coffee, light chocolate notes, roasted malt, dark fruit (plums?), molasses, grassy hops, vanilla, and some caramel. A solid enough flavor, but not as aggressive as it should be, given the style. Could have used a bit more coffee and chocolate. Still, a good flavor.

F: An average amount of carbonation with a silky finish. Medium- to full-bodied.

O: This isn't the greatest stout I've ever tried, but it is definitely drinkable. Worth a look.
